used chemical weapons. the question is why is the white house waiting when president obama said this is a red line? the answer is that properly, as you were stressing, he wants to be sure of the evidence and also to be sure that he can take it to the u.n. and international forums to have legitimacy for whatever the u.s. does. the bottom line for the u.s. continues to be trying to get the russians onboard in a negotiated settlement which will require most solid evidence that bashar al assad has crossed not just obama's red line but vladimir putin's as well. that's where they are this afternoon. >> here's the president's spokesman today. let's listen to this. >> knowing that potentially chemical weapons have been used inside of syria doesn't tell us when they were used, how they were used. obtaining confirmation and strong evidence. all of those things we have to make sure we work on with the international community. i've been very clear publicly, but also privately, that for the syrian government to utilize chemical weapons on its people crosses a line that will change my calculo

, there was a lot of enthusiasm about anything. that is a disaster, just as governor romney. president obama will muster lemaster with a historically low percentage of white voters. only 39%. 39%, the president had a little extra support in other places. 71% of the hispanic vote. 71%. 73% voted for president obama. but the black vote was spectacular. he got 93% of the black vote. talk about a consensus, that is a consensus. the key was the black voter turnout. making just about 12% of the eligible voters in the country. they turned up 13% of the total votes from last year. for the first time ever, voters turn out at a higher rate than white voters overall last year. in fact, if they turned out at the same rate as they did back in 2004, governor romney would have actually won the election. it's not clear that the democratic party can repeat last year's performance. but one thing is clear. everything the republican party did was inadequate. they certainly demonstrated that the republican party has a lot of thinking to do. they better find some better thinkers if they are going to be competitiv
